Vixen and the Pea by Lila Shaw is a very naughty take on a fairy tale which explodes off the pages.  The tale centers are a very brash and bored Prince Koldo who according to his parents has been dodging the marriage bed, producing an heir, and avoiding the throne, all in the name of sowing his wild oats.  In order to do this Koldo has taken on another persona by the name of Bero and travels outside of his kingdom to deflower as many as possible.

Lady Otsana’s goal in her life is to have sex, and plenty of it, with whomever she chooses.  She does this under the disguise of a whore named Fleur, which proves very easy as maidens are completely covered and no one views their faces.  Otsana is not one for the archaic ways of the kingdom where women with an ounce of intelligence are not necessarily desirable and should be brood mares to produce heirs.  According to Otsana, this is not the life she sees for herself and does not want to be saddled with a husband.

Bero and Fleur meet in a tavern as both search for sexual gratification. Fleur knows exactly who Bero truly is yet he does not know she is the Lady Otsana. Ms. Shaw melts the pages of the book with the sexual exploits of the two.  Her descriptors leave nothing to the imagination as she details every wicked deed between Bero and Fleur. This is not your ordinary fairy tale as she invents a new way to utilize the pea and gives new meaning to the word naughty. Hot, supple bodies and steamy sex are definitely in order for Vixen and the Pea; a fairy tale for adults and not the faint of heart.  A recommended read with an HEA that will not disappoint.
